An American Dream!

The American Pie started in January, 2012 out of the home of Kurt and Misty Carrick.  Kurt Carrick has always wanted to start his own pizza business and with the help of his wife, Misty and two daughters, Rachel and Olive, he is finally making that dream come true!  Kurt has been on the road for over twenty years as a guitar technician and has decided to get off the road, spend more time with his family and make Awesome Pizza!

The Transformation

We are renting and renovating a small building in Red Boiling Springs, TN, where we reside.  With help from a few amazing friends, we are transforming the building into a pizza shop we call The American Pie.

Before

Selling a motorcycle, an RV, a Marshall amplifier and some bass guitars have gotten us this far.  We need an additional $5000 to open.

What will the money be used for?

Dough boxes (they aren't cheap), smallwares (pizza peels, cutters, servers and such), 2 stainless steel tables, dispensers, initial food and drink orders, tables and chairs (as you can see from the picture there aren't any), telephone system, POS system and insurance plus a long list of little things that are needed to open a restaurant.

The Pizza

All of our American Pies are hand-made with fresh toppings.  We mix a special blend of cheeses and pepperoni, make our own sauce and hand make our secret dough.  The dough makes a flavorful crust that rises like bread.  It's totally awesome pizza.

Who is the girl at the end of the video that keeps saying "Ooey Gooey Deliciousness"?

Melanie Denard.  Melanie is a gifted singer and a dear friend, go Google her.

Here is our Awesome Pizza trailer, just a bit of fun!

Thank you for your pledge!
